The mission of NH Employment Security's Unemployment Compensation Bureau is to pay benefits to eligible claimants temporarily unemployed or underemployed through no fault of their own, and to collect taxes from employers to fund these benefit payments. Each employer must file a Tax and Wage Report for every quarter after being found subject to the law. The report serves two purposes: to provide wage information about individual employees to be used in determining potential entitlement to benefits; and to establish the amount of taxable wages paid each quarter so that taxes due may be calculated and paid timely.

Effective October 1, 2019 pursuant to RSA 282-A:87 the distribution of quarterly tax paid has been redefined. As a result the maximum AC rate has changed from 0.2% to 0.4%, the minimum AC rate remains at 0.1%. The remainder is allocated to the UI (Unemployment Trust Fund). The net rate has not changed.
For Example: a net rate of 1.2% is now allocated as 0.4% AC and 0.8% UI

Calendar Year Rates
The Taxable Wage Base remains at $14,000.
